Hello what is the texture like? Does it feel more like SP SA or Maxkey SA?

does it exist?
thanks.

You can find it on www.melgeek.com

Is that clear plastic case also the Mojo60? It looks really good.
Maybe they're waiting for gasmasks and latex to get sexy again.

The world has become a weird place.

I really like how the mojo60 look, especially the cerakote corvette yellow. But it being a tray mount for its price is disappointing, even for the anodized version. Would you consider making a revised version of the case that uses top-mount or gasket-mount in the future?

Mojo60 will keep tray mount to fit all kind of GH60 PCB, and I will change the design details to cut cost in future, so will be more cheaper

3 days left GB on https://drop.com/buy/melgeek-studio-mg-ember-abs-doubleshot-keycap-set#overview

This render is misleading.
There is no R2 "Page Up" or an R3 "Page Down" in any of the kits.
Please correct me if I am wrong?

Yes, I don't see a PgUp for R2 or a PgDn for R3.  And I have no idea why there is a PgUp for R4

In another render, there is also an R3 and R4 "CODE"
These keys do not exist in the kit. What's going on? Why are there keys in the renders but yet, they're not supported in the kits?

I am disappointed that more work was not done with this set.  It could have been much more and in the end it seemed rushed and a bit lazy.  It appears to me to just be a copy of Maxkey with a colour change.  That is a bit lazy.  With all that said, I still bought both kits as I want it for my CA66.  I currently have the Maxkey set on it and it feels and sounds superb.  This colour option is a great one for the silver SA66.

I will post images when it all arrives.

About three renders was finished before the KIT, so you can find some errors from these renders

Does not look as muted as the renders but that could just be the lighting.  In relation to each other they still look great.

I got this from Drop today:

"Due to further complications with the Coronavirus outbreak, these orders have been pushed back for an additional two months. This means these orders aren't estimated to ship until sometime in May 2020.

If you would prefer to cancel your order, please contact Community Support using the “Contact Support” button on your transactions page and our Community Support Team will be able to help cancel your order up until it is ready for shipment."

It doesn't really matter to me because what this is going on isn't coming until May also but I figured I'd pass it along.
